Send to OneNote from Outlook
Outlook allows me to "copy" an e-mail via "Send to OneNote" into a page. This is only working with the OneNote 2016 desktop app. It would be great if I could send an e-mail to the UWP OneNote app.
The new Send to OneNote that no longer allows a folder search is a huge step backwards. I regret having switched to OneNote from Evernote now.
It's so sad that Microsoft has chosen to make OneNote less capable instead of more capable.

I also used the send to OneNote feature from outlook quite frequently. Please bring it back! Forwarding emails to email@example.com does not work as well as the send to one note feature.
This feature is now back in OneNote
It is ridiculous that Evernote has this and OneNote only allows me to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org which does not even create a link back to the original email... Microsoft is killing great products for no good reason.
Guess what...Now Outlook and OneNote for Mac has this feature. What the heck, Microsoft? Stop crippling a great product.

Again, the silence is deafening....
This is a really valuable feature that is a must have before I agree to migrate.
I absolutely need the functionality to send an email to OneNote from outlook ! Printing to OneNote does not work since it will not deliver editable text and forwarding the email to a onenote email is not going to be compliant with my company security policies. So I will switch back to OneNote 2016, but I really belive this is something Microsoft should address ASAP.
Yes, the send to onenote button is gone! I'm going to have to salvage my old computer and return this swanky new computer I just bought so I can continue to work effectively. Annoying!
What happened with options "send to OneNote"? I can only print to OneNote. The new program looks great but is not connected to office365 at all. The options from the previous version have also disappeared.
I wonder if Microsoft are noticing the trend here - more and more posts like this asking for features from OneNote 2016 to be included in OneNote UWP. There seems to be a rather obvious answer - just continue to support and develop OneNote 2016, which already has all these features.

At the bottom of the Advanced section in Outlook Settings you can switch Send to OneNote to work with the UWP/Store version - but the woding isn't particularly clear!
YES !!! What is the interest of OneNote now ? All the interesting features have disappeared...

YES!!!! I was just looking all over the place the other day, WHY isn't this a feature??
I am a keen user of onenote and outlook. Both at home and at work I have an Office365 account. In some situations I am forced to use the webbased versions, and it always puzzles me why it is not possible to easily send an outlook email to onenote in the webbased versions. Users are given the possibility to connect web-outlook with a plethora of third party apps, connectors, add ins and plugins, but no single one leads to Onenote ...
Or am I missing something?
I fully support this request!
Vital facility for us to aid communication within the office

Yes, definitely. I know we can "print" to OneNote app, but that puts a static image, not clickable text.

Big need for this!
As a workaround, you can install Print to OneNote from the store and print the page. Not at friendly but its an alternative. You could also do email to OneNote.

I've decided to shift to UWP OneNote, so it's disconcerting to have OneNote 365 Desktop open up when I send and email to OneNote. I'm hoping to be able to uninstall OneNote 365 Desktop someday (will that ever be possible?) but I wonder what will happen to "Send to OneNote" if that happens.
Agree with everyone below, the experience of uses and time savers from this fraternity below, shows all how powerful this tool can be in addition to what we're making the best of.
Convenience, & speed, is the benefit.
